I don't think the window geometry settings needs a lot of options. Just
save the windows position and size on exit. Most users would probably
not notice it. But those that likes to carefully layout their windows
will be happy.

The only reason against saving window geomentry that I can think of, is
that it might place the window outside the screen if the user switches
resoultion. This is easily solved though; by also saving the resolution
and do some scaling if it doesen't match the current resolution.

I am aware of that. But I suspect a lot of people have both the KDE and
GNOME libraries installed just to be able to run the best applications
from both desktops?
